Imaging facility managers and staff from around the globe met at the first Exchange of Experience Workshop from 8th-10th June 2016 at the EMBL in Heidelberg Germany, organized by the Global BioImaging Project.
European life science researchers now have the possibility to use state-of-the-art imaging technologies, which they do not find at their home institutions or among their collaboration partners.
In March Austria joined Euro-BioImaging Interim Board as its 16th member, together with 14 other European countries and EMBL. With their signature Austrian Ministry of Science Research and Economy supported work towards establishment of pan European imaging infrastructure that will serve all life scientists in Europe.
Austria will be represented in Euro-BioImaging Interim Board by Delegates from the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy, and the Medical University Vienna.
This past autumn, Euro-BioImaging (EuBI), the pan-European research infrastructure for imaging technologies on the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap took two key steps toward becoming a reality.
... and the Euro-BioImaging partners are very excited to kick-off their work with their international collaboration partners in Australia and India, as well as the new partners in Argentina, Japan, South Africa and the United States. Together, they will exchange knowledge and experience on how to operate best open access imaging infrastructure, and provide image data services and training for staff in facility management and cutting-edge imaging technologies.
